Your perspective changes when it becomes....Personal
Navigate Hope Inc., a 501c3 non-profit, was formed as a result of our own personal struggles to find resources, education and support when it came to Mental Health in our community.
Our mission is to address the needs for Mental Health education and resources for our schools (faculty and students), first line responders, and the local community. Statistics indicate that 1 in 5 Americans struggle with mental health and 1 in 4 between the ages of 13 and 18.
During this health crisis, people are struggling emotionally due to high stress levels, unemployment, isolation, grief and loss. Prolonged stress can lead to a mental crisis such as self-harm, substance abuse or suicide. Barriers to mental health care existed before the pandemic, but those challenges are exacerbated as more Georgians report symptoms of depression and anxiety. Many people are not well informed about how to recognize mental health problems, how to provide support and what are the best treatments and services available.
We’re working towards a community where all people understand how to take care of their own mental health and look out for each other. A community without shame, where all those who need support get the help they deserve.
